I stayed at the Station Hotel during a business trip in January 2014. The hotel was recommended by a colleague who had stayed there before. It's located close to the middle of Dumfries and has lots of free parking.

I found all the staff I encountered to be attentive and friendly. My room was small but perfectly comfortable and scrupulously clean. The room had a flat screen TV on the wall, a desk, wardrobe, comfortable bed with lots of pillows and a somewhat temperamental reading lamp The bathroom had a good, powerful shower. There was secondary glazing inside the sash windows so there were no problems with outside noise from the street or the railway. I couldn't pick up the free wifi in my room but this didn't bother me too much.

I ate at the hotel restaurant both nights of my stay and found the food to be of good quality and reasonable value. The cooked breakfast in the morning was nothing special but the service was good.

The hotel has a solid Edwardian feel and a good amount of character. I find travelling for work to be pretty horrible but it's made a lot less horrible if you stay somewhere nice. The Station Hotel certainly ticks that box and I'd be happy to stay there again.

Attended the Rotary Club of Dumfries Devorgilla's annual Xmas Dinner last night. Had the seafood cake starter and the roast turkey and all the trimmings as the main course. Turkey at christmas can be a gamble in some establishments but not here, Cameron the chef did a great job turning out a hot meal, succulent meat and a lovely gravy/jus. The cheese and biscuits were good, loved the camembert but the blue cheese a tad strong for my taste. The service was friendly and we were well looked after. All in all a great night, superb value for money, great experience.

We just spent 2 nights in the Station Hotel as a little break away from home. Right beside the railway station there is plenty of parking. It is nice and central. Warm greeting on arrival from Aileen. Our room was a very pleasant surprise. It was large with one of the comfiest beds I have ever come across in a hotel. Very clean and a nice tray with tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
Check in and out very quick.A great breakfast that set you up for the day.We would stay again.

Room Tip: We choose the bigger bed and it was so comfy. Our room was on a corner and was spacious.

Stopped here on a short business stay, nice and easy to find as it is opposite the station, welcoming and nice big room, modern fittings and cosy, clean with all amenities, good Wi-Fi connection.
Breakfast menu was extensive. I will use again when in the area.
